Without thinking much, it seems that pkgsrc should follow base, but
perhaps base should change.

What's the rationale for dropping md2?  It seems like the code could not
be big, and the question is whether the memory usage hurts more than the
benefit of any use.  Is the use of md2 really zero (rather than rare)
these days?  It seems like it should be, but things live on longer than
they should.
